When I need a quick and simple gluten-free meal on nights I won’t have time to cook, I open up Stephanie O’Dea’s Make It Fast, Cook It Slow for recipes and inspiration. Yes, I wrote a quick and simple cookbook – and I have some yummy slow cooker recipes in there. But, sometimes I want something new.
I like to make sure that Joe always has dinner even if I’m not going to be home. Yes, sometimes he eats leftovers and I usually have a meal or two in the freezer. When he’s been traveling a lot, though, a hot, home cooked meal is exactly what he wants. The slow cooker lets me make dinner in 10 minutes – but I never tell him that.
This is my take on Stephanie’s recipe. For all of you that love your slow cooker for it’s convenience and the ability to cook from scratch for your family on those busy nights, put this on your to-make list. And don’t tell anyone how quick and simple it is…they’ll never guess.
Have a favorite slow cooker recipe? I’d love to hear about it.
